Left bander Dave Day won his fifth straight decision with- out a loss, but needed relief from Ron Biggs who retired the last two men in the ninth inning after the Lakers had scored twice on a double by Ken Nakama. Bob Brown tripled and scor- ed the other Lethbridge run in the sixth inning on an in- field out. Day struck out seven and gave up seven hits. Outfield Paul Galivan, cat- cher John Edwards and infield- er Larry Nakonechny had three hits for Giants, includ- ing a double apiece. Randy Maxwell was charged with the Lethbridge defeat. Lakers will meet the Giants at Henderson Stadium Thurs- day evening looking to use their home park to regain first place. Paul Sullivan, 4-0 is expected to start for the Lakers while i Biggs could get the nod for teh Giants. In Edmonton the Tigers gain- ed sole possession of first j place in the northern division of the League Tuesday with a 4-3 extra-inning decision over Ed- monton Blockers. Stu Henderson led off the 10th with a bunt single, was sacrificed to second by Dave Sowinski and scored on a dou- ble by playing-manager Grv Franchuk. BOB BROWN A triple KEN NAKAMA Two-run double It takes ttiore than a Russian sounding name to make a great vodka ALBERTA I PURE I VODKA Filly favored in race TORONTO (CP> Ontario Jockey Club handicappers fig- ure La Prevoyante will win the Queen's Plate, although she was a faltering third in the Cana- dian Oaks last Saturday. We're sticking with the said Don Stansfield, who along with fellow handicapper Joe Holmes, have La Pre- voyante listed as 2-3 favorite for the race Satur- day. La Prevoyante, owned by Jean Louis Levesque of Mon- treal, finished behind winner Square Angel and Impressive Lady in the Oaks, a I's-rnile race. It was her first loss in Can- ada and the first time in 19 ca- reer races that she has finished worse than second. She has to- tal earnings of THINK SHE'S CAPABLE "We know that people are saying she won't be able to get the distance of the plate be- cause of the way she finished in the Stansfield siaid. "We think she's still capable of win- ning." Next in line is Victorian Prince, who was priced at 3-1, as the second choice in the 114th running of the IV-i-mile race for three year olds foaled in Canada. Victorian Prince runs for the Grovetree and B.C. aWe of Toronto Other odds were: Zaca Spirit, 5-1; Impressive Lady, 8-1; Royal Chocolate, Tara Road, Good Port and Sinister Purpose, 10-1; Combat Day, 12-1; Queen's Splendour, 15-1; Albert The Consort and Singing Spirit, both 20-1; Lucky Master, Fabiusand, My Archie Bald and Northern Sweeper, all 30-1; and Call Me Stanley, 50-1. Queen's Splendour and Royal Chocolate both won a division of the plate trial last Saturday. HAS CALGARY INTEREST Singing Spirit is owned by Donald McLaws, former presi- dent of Calgary Stampeders in the Western Football Confer- ence, and Bill Boswell, also of Calgary. Their trainer, Les Lear, pur- chased the horse Saturday for about from George Fros- tad's Bo-Teek Farm. Lear, former coach of the Stampeders, is familiar with McLaws. Don fired me back in 1952. It was new management coming in and they decided to clean out the office so I went. But that's part of the coaching racket. "Since then I've trained horses for Don and I think we may have picked up a nice kind of horse. He's eligible for the Plate as well as the Winnipeg and Canadian Derbies out west." RODGERS SCORES MONTREAL (CP) Johnny Rodgers, last year's Heisman Trophy winner, caught a 27- yard touchdown pass from in- cumbent quarterback Sonny Wade Tuesday right as the Green team beat the White 14- 0 in Montreal Alouettes' an- nual intra-squad game.

QUINELLA: GETS BIG CONTRACT TOKYO (AP) George Fore- man, world heavyweight boxing champion, will receive mil- lion when he defends his title against Joe Roman of Puerto Rico here Sept. 1, the sponsor- ing Japanese television com- pany said Tuesday. The chal- lenger will get HAMILTON (CP) Any question about the timing of the annual Canadian Football League all-star game inter- fering with the general course of football business was dis- pelled Tuesday night. Rival coaches of the CFL stars and the 1973 rey Cup champions, Hamilton Tiger- Cats, agreed that the present format was to their satisfaction. And George Reed, ace run- rYng back of Saskatchewan Roughriders and president of the CFL Players' Association, concurred, saying that if game time was changed to im- mediately after training camp he probably wouldn't play. "I wouldn't play at the end of training the CFL's all- time ground gainer said during an informal gathering of coaches. "There are only three or four days to prepare for the first game after training camp breaks and I have to concen- trate every moment. "Now, we've got time to play the all-star game and think about the future." Game time tonight is 6 o'clock MDT- It will be televised on the CTV network with To- j ronto-Hamilton area blacked out. John Payne, new coach of the 'Riders, who became head coach of the All-Stars by virtue of Saskatchewan's 13-10 loss to Ticats in last fall's national final, arrived here shortly be- fore the news conference. BEST TIME FOR GAISIE Former assistant with both Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Edmonton Eskimos, also of the Western Football Conference, Payne said "the best time for a game of this nature is now, be- ore we get into the season." Hamilton coach Jerry Wil- liams said the game wasn't in- terfering with his training camp plans and Ralph Goldston, for- mer Ticat and Montreal Alouette who is assisting the all star preparations, called the timing "excellent.'' Payne's prime worry is whether the stars will have an adequate running game to take some of the pressure off Reed, whom he'll be relying on to carry the 'Rider payload during the season. "It bothers me a great deal." said Payne of the circum- stances. "We just may throw the ball a lot." The all stars were left with Reed as the only regular run- ning back when Mack Herron of Winnipeg Blue Bombers was dropped from the team after being charged with a drug of- fence, and Montreal's Ike Brown was sidelined with an in- jury. Efforts to land another run- ning back from the two teams were fruitleess. The only other Montreal player considered; Ca- nadian Larry Smith, was also hit with an injury. The stars settled on B.C.'s Jim Young, a converted wide receiver. Reed said the CFLPA's and commissioner Jake Gaudaur's pleas to the Winnipeg club were rebuffed last week when the Bomtiers said they would not supply a fourth player to the all-star roster. NOT AVAILABLE The CFLPA president said both Paul Williams and Peter Ribbins were suggested as re- placements but head coach Jim Spavital claimed both were being converted to other posi- tions and could not be freed. Gerry Patterson of Montreal, legal counsel for the CFLPA, said the matter has been re- ferred to the commissioner's of- fice and that the CFLPA will submit a report and recommen- dations to the league after the all star game. He said the league has an agreement with the players' as- sociation to make four players available from each team, and he believes it will come to the point where the clubs will be forced to make their best play- ers available.

ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Gene Littler looks good IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) It's been almost two years since pro golfer Gene Littler had a cancer removed from under his left shoulder. But this week Littler took an- other step in trying to prove he's made it all the way back. Littler fired a seven-under par 65 Monday to finish in a second-place tie with J. C. Snead in the Amana VIP Golf Tournament here. The winner was DeWitt Weaver at 64. The Amana showing, along with a fourth-place finish in last week's American Golf Classic in Akron, Ohio, is perhaps in- dication that the 42-year old La Jolla, Calif., resident is again ready to put his name among golfing's elite. After his operation, Littler made his first appearance in last year's rained-out Amana tournament. "I've come a long way since a year Littler said. "I've been playing well enough to win tournaments and every aspect of my game is starting to shape up." The 1961 U.S. Open champion, Littler has 24 tour victories to his credit and won the pro Tournament of Champions in NATIONAL LEAGUE East W L Pet. GBL Chicago 43 30 .589 Montrpa! "H i? 5nn AT-.
